A fun place to meet up with old and new friends. Decent pub food and plenty of spirits! Live music delights crowds on Sunday.

Been here a few times. I haven't had any of the food, but the beer is cold and they've got a good selection of beers on draft (as well as cider.) We actually left to go to another bar and ended up coming back here...More
